We hope all of you are staying safe and well during this unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic!! Our thoughts and prayers are with the ones who have lost their loved ones and friends during this tragic times.
Myanmar had to miss much-awaited Water Festival in April. The weather was exceptionally hot and millions have to go through Home Stay situation. Despite these, Myanmar Insider team has worked hard to bring this issue for you.
For this edition, you’ll find a mixture of news, in-depth interviews, special features and regular business columns on a wide range of issues covering E-commerce, insurance, digital and, of course, Covid-19 related stories!
I’d recommend the interview with Marc de la Fouchardière, Executive Director of EuroCham who is very candid in his advice on where Myanmar should improve to attract European investments. Country President of Chubb Life Insurance Myanmar also tells us his vision for the insurance industry’s future.
Last but not least, our regular columnist Anu Seth has shared wisdom on how to rediscover live during Covid pandemic while our very own local reporters tackle various angles on Covid-19’s impacts on Myanmar and its people.
